Beginning February 1, 2013, TDLR will no longer accept new requests to perform Architectural Barriers (AB) inspections. While TDLR may continue to conduct some public sector AB inspections for state leases and other state agencies, the agency is getting entirely out of the private market, which already performs 96% of the required inspections. This will free up TDLR inspectors to focus on inspections that are best performed by agency staff, and creates more opportunity for the private sector Registered Accessibility Specialists (RAS). The RAS program is an example of a very successful “Public-Private Partnership.” The 400-plus private-sector RAS’s licensed by TDLR are more than capable of handling the additional workload, and TDLR welcomes the opportunity to help increase their market share. This move aligns with TDLR’s credo of “Smaller, Smarter Government” and TDLR’s Core Values of Innovation and Customer Service.
The email address for submitting questions to TDLR regarding compliance with the Texas Accessibility Standards and Texas Government Code, Chapter 469 has changed to email@example.com. We give top priority to all questions we receive at this address but some responses may be delayed during the transition to the new email address.
The Texas Board of Architectural Examiners’ June newsletter includes an article reminding architectural barrier project registrants to contact the Registered Accessibility Specialist. Read TBAE’s article
